The Christian Creed: Its Origin and Signification
Cosimo, Inc., 1 apr. 2007 - 156 sidor
How does the story of Christianity and the tenets of the faith fit into the grand scheme of transcultural spirituality? In this inspiring book, first published in 1904, the renowned spiritualist Charles W. Leadbeater places Christianity into the larger context of human religious experience-with a specific eye toward demonstrating how adherents of theosophy, the esoteric philosophy popular at the turn of the 20th century that attempted to reconcile science and religion, could maintain their Christian faith. Seekers after spiritual wisdom and students of comparative mythology will find this a fascinating read. British author CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.
